    I have been working at Los Angeles Times

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. People are nice here. You do not need to worry about being back stabbed. Love it here.

    Cons

    Layoffs! This happens every month. Some rounds - few people; some rounds bunch of people. No formal communication regarding this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems like Tribune is taking over everything; editorial and all back office.
    Talk to us! Let us know what is going on.

    I have been working at Los Angeles Times

    Pros

    This is a very good news organization with many talented and committed people, the problem is poor management from Tribune, which seems intent on running the company into the ground. Layoffs have become too frequent.

    Cons

    Layoffs! Poor communication from senior management, Tribune Tower's control of the paper. The rush to develop web content has been done in a disjointed way, and hasn't involved enough of the print employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let us find out what's happening from outside sources, especially layoffs. Allow more cross-migration between web and print sections and less rigid work profiles.
